Happy Easter!

Here's to egg hunts, chocolate bunnies and...movies! What? Well, I've been fortunate enough to see two excellent movies in the past few days so I thought I'd share...

First, a movie called THE LOOKOUT blew me away. It's a psychological thriller about a young man struggling to get his life back after one bad decision leaves him brain damaged. Excellent performances all the way around. What really impressed me was the script, written by Scott Frank. As a writer, I really enjoyed the foreshadowing, symbolism and twists and turns that kept me guessing. A+ Scott! Next, I saw THE NAMESAKE which is about an Indian family (Bengali) and their son's struggle with self-identity. Very tender and engaging film.

What have you seen lately that you can recommend? A film that you keep thinking about days later? Share!

Here's to sunshine and great movies!
